Escondido, California – Dean Racing Development (DRD) is proud to announce the alliance of it’s professional mountain bike team with the factory X-Fusion race team for the 2011 season! Two of the nation’s elite mountain race programs have dedicated their resources to produce a domestic cycling powerhouse.
“I’m ecstatic to have the opportunity to work with an emerging company like X-Fusion,” said Dylan Dean, DRD owner. “X-Fusion’s dedication to their race program and to US racing is second to none. Judging by the efforts to develop their products and produce top of the line suspension, along with the support they offer to their race team, can only be described as inspiring. I look forward towards developing a highly successful race program with X-Fusion this next season. Based on the response from potential team riders and sponsors, the team will be one to watch in 2011!”
The race program will focus its efforts in the United States by competing in the nation’s premier cycling events, including the Professional Gravity Tour (Pro GRT), Sea Otter Classic, & US Open. In addition, the team will compete in several World Cups within North American & Europe, along with Crankworx, and select regional events & festivals.
“Joining forces with Dean Racing Development for 2011 has been a collaboration of both parties experience and vision for US racing. Dylan Dean has been at the front of reigniting gravity racing in America and is the perfect fit for this type of race program. The combination of both program’s resources and Dylan’s complete dedication to US racing will position the team to benefit greatly. At X-Fusion we are also excited to work with a few new rider faces, some familiar ones and even a talented young junior. 2011 aspires to be a great year for American racing and the X-Fusion/DRD partnership.” – John Hauer, X-Fusion Marketing Coordinator
Committed to continue the concept of supporting both professional and developmental riders, the DRD X-Fusion program will announce it’s factory team roster in the weeks to come.
